Businessmen drink my blood 
Like the kids in art school said they would 
And I guess I'll just begin again
You say you, can we still be friends 

If I was scared 
I would 
And if I was bored 
You know I would 
And if I was yours 
Well I'm not

All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears no clothes 
But to bow to down to them anyway 
Is better than being alone

If I was scared 
I would 
And if I was bored 
You know I would 
And if I was yours 
But I'm not

Now you're knocking at my door
 Saying please come out against tonight
But I would rather be alone 
Than pretend I feel alright 
If the businessmen drink my blood 
Like the kids in art school said they would 
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say you can still be friends 

If I was scared 
I would 
And if I was pure
You know I would 
And if I was yours 
But I'm not

Now I'm ready to start 

If I was scared 
I would 
And if I was pure
You know I would 
And if I was yours 
But I'm not

Now I'm ready to start 

Now I'm ready to start 
I would rather be wrong 
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I'm ready to start 
Now I'm ready to start 
My mind is open wide
And now I'm ready to start 
Your mind surely opened the door
To step out into the dark
Now I'm ready
